Most of the stories had interesting elements. My favorites were A Boy and His Dog (twisted love story, er, not bestiality) and The Big Flash (large-scale brainwashing). I also enjoyed After the Myths Went Home, Death by Ecstasy, For the Sake of Grace, and Sixth Sense. A quote from the last story (The Big Flash) sums up the series, and kind of the whole SciFi genre, well: Oh yes, I'm a monster mother... just call me mankind. ( )
